Student Science Writer Positions: The Society for Personality and Social Psychology Seeks eDaily Contributors for Annual Convention  
Personality and Social Psychology PhD Graduates:Results from the NSF Survey of Earned Doctorates The number of social and personality psychology graduates has held steady over the past five years. Post-graduation plans include academic jobs, post-docs, non-academic employment/other plans, and those still seeking work or study. Results highlight the need to help students prepare for a range of post-graduation opportunities. We can also better support females and graduates from diverse backgrounds pursuing academic research careers.
The Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) joins with other scientific societies and psychology departments to “share our concerns that basic science research is being redefined as a clinical trial at NIH.”   "The undersigned organizations applaud NIH for its work to improve transparency in clinical trials. We recognize that concerns have been raised with the agency that not enough data elements are being collected on clinical trials, and that the results of NIH-funded clinical trials are not being published in a timely manner. We understand that these are real problems the agency must address.  
Congratulations to the 2017 SPSP and APA Division 8 Fellows! We applaud your extraordinary, distinctive, and longstanding contributions to the science of personality and social psychology.
